Trump reportedly ‘left OFF’ ballot at some Florida polling stations; complaints pile in

As voters across Florida are voting in the GOP presidential primary today, the results are set to be the most talked about state primary returns in the race for the White House thus far.

Just like in typical key swing-state primaries, there have already been reports of voter fraud and election ballot mishaps.

According to Fox Business Reporter Jennifer Eckhart, sources in Florida have told her that Donald Trump has been left off some ballots in a few counties.

On top of the alleged mishap with Trump being left off of Florida ballots, there are also reports of Republican voters being given Independent voter ballots in Jupiter, Florida, causing loads of confusion, Eckhart reported via Twitter. 

Some observers claim Trump’s name being a no-show on certain ballots was due to confusion in the closed primary.

Florida Secretary of State’s office explained the issue in a late afternoon statement. 

“Florida has a closed primary. No party affiliation––if you do not have a party, you do not get a ballot for a Democrat or a Republican. So what people got in Palm Beach County was a local municipal ballot and Donald Trump’s name was not on it.”

But the confusion doesn’t seem like it will die down anytime soon.

In Ohio, the ballots have left voters puzzled as well. In the highly-contested race out of the state primary today, GOP voters apparently must mark their presidential candidate twice on the ballot in order for the vote to be cast properly.

Otherwise, if the voter only marks their pick for president once, the vote does not count, according to Eckhart. 

Earlier today, BizPac Review reported on the voting nightmares coming out of Florida, where in Orange County, voting precincts were turning away voters as early as 9:30 a.m. because election headquarters had run out of ballots.
